Local Reviews

We have historic cemeteries. We are on the Endymion parade route during Mardi Gras. We are near Jazz Fest.

There are several parks within my neighborhood . They're also is a bike trail that goes from one end of the city to the other end of the city. With the bike trail you have access to everything bars restaurants grocery stores shops whatever your heart desires.

We live near the fairgrounds, where Jazz Fest occurs every year which is very cool. I like the restaurant Lola's. I like going to City Park, Stallings Park, and the bayou with my family and friends.

It has numerous old houses with an historic vibe. Nice restaurants and shops within walking distance.

It is very close to one of the biggest public park. Also very quiet and friendly neighbors. There is a nice bike path to downtown and restaurants.

I love going out to eat the movies and having family pictures taken when we are out and about enjoying life
